Why Trish Regan of Fox Business doesn’t like scripted interviews
Sam Dorman of IJR.com profiled Fox Business Network anchor Trish Regan and focused on how she does her job.
Dorman writes, “‘Everyone I know who has interviewed with her likes her,’ Media Research Center Vice President Dan Gainor, who has appeared many times on her show, told IJR. ‘She’s nice and asks good questions but still has room to laugh and enjoy it.’
“When asked about the impression she wants to give her audience, Regan says, “I want them to know me.’ It’s that authenticity that often pops up when she’s talking with guests on her show.
“She says none of her interview questions — even in the bombshell interview she scored with President Donald Trump — are scripted.
“‘The minute you start scripting questions, you lose the ability to listen,’ she explained.
“IJR sat down for her show and watched as she talked her way through an interview with former White House aide and vocal Trump supporter Sebastian Gorka. Rather than sounding like she was reading from a script, her questions came off like she was brainstorming and wanted the audience to be a part of that process.”
